There are more than 30 LGBTQ youth centers across the U.S., but few target the Spanish-speaking community specifically.

One thought on “EMPODERATE!”
Well, most graduates’ jobs are not reltead to their majors, so you can be pretty much anything you want to be. Also, I am not sure how the Latino Communist will benefit from this degree, but I am pretty sure your community will benefit by having more college graduates and more teachers who are passionate about teaching kids.
